The Handicap Cup has a new organiser, Nick Gould, and he will be pleased with some of the first round results. The Cody A against Godalming Y was a handicapper’s dream. Everybody managed a win and the match was decided in the ninth end with Peter Anthony completing a hattrick to get Cody through. Ash A’s win over Challoner was a team effort with all three players contributing, Terry Osborne and George Earle each getting duos as did Tom Taylor-Woodward for Challoner. Ash B got the better of Godalming X with Martin Gilbey undefeated. Allianz beat Ash D 5-2 with Steve Simnett winning the two matches he played. 
The entry forms for the Handicap Tournament will shortly be available from the website and club secretaries. Once again it is being held on two evenings just after Christmas on January 10th and 11th. It is a very popular tournament so early entries are encouraged to allow the new organiser, Chris Hazlehurst, plenty of time to be prepared.
